Opinion: Scams hurt real people: Mitchell woman a victim of deceit in latest ployLila Steiber was hesitant to give me her name when she called to politely complain that The Daily Republic hadn’t done a good job of publicizing the latest scam to hit South Dakota.
What we call a “brief” — a short story only three or four paragraphs in length — had run at the bottom corner of Page 2 of Saturday’s edition. We should have done more, she said.
As we talked, the floodgates opened. Embarrassed, she told me how she fell for the scam just a few weeks ago.
